Another reason given liy the Sun
for foretelling Mr. Dowduey's reappointment is Sir John's attachment to hiin, mul Lady Macdonald's leaning toward Mrs. Dewdney.
This is beyond argument. We do
not believo that Sir John is quite
insane enough to nuiko such an obnoxious appointment simply through
a feeling of personal friendship for
Mr. Dewdney. Surely such private
feelings would not influence Sir
John. No, we believe that if Sir
John does reappoint Mr. Dowdney,
it will be because he thinks he is a
good man for the position, and if he
thinks that, he has been grossly
misinformed. Either this is the
case, or Sir John has determined to
turn a deaf ear to the truth, and
make the appointment in spite of
the evident dissatisfaction it will
cause. While the government are
doing so. much for the Northwest,
it would be a pity to neutralize the
good by appointing a lieutenant-
governor who is not only thoroughly
disliked, but is looked upon with
the greatest distrust throughout the
territories,—MaisLeoil Gazette.

The Gaimdlaii Paelllc.
The Seattle Post of the 18th inst.
says: "The completion of the Canadian Pacific and its open contest for
the trade of the country tributary
to Puget Sound should be hailed
with delight by the people of the
North Pacific Coast. It is an event
of the utmost importance to the
business men nnd shippers of Washington Territory, end they may well
look upon tho future with a degree
of Ijopef ul 'expectancy such as they
have never before been justified in
feeling. A uew line now connects
them with the cities of the east, and
a new competitor is bidding for
their patronage, and evincing nn
earnest desire to deal fairly by the
public and to deserve the patronage
whioh it will receive. Of course,
no transcendent virtues aro, to bo
ascribed to the Canadian Pacitio
Railway Company. , It is u corpora--
tion, and like jill of its competitors
its object is to make money, and to
make as much money as possible, j
It will not confer benefits out of
pure philanthropy, but it will confer
benefits none the less. Its advent
introduces a new element of competition, and the people are never
the losers by competition between
railroads. With the completion of
eaeh new road to the Pacific Coast,
the interests of all are more diflicult
to harmonize and pooling arrangements are of necessity more complex and incomplete. The havoc
whioh one line of an independent
turn of mind can make in the entire transcontinental system is shown
by the reduction of freight and
passenger rntes which the Sunset
route has forced within thc past six
months. In union thero is strength
for the railroads, but in numbers
there is deliverance for the people.
The people of Seattle have especial
reason to feel gratification nt the
'completion of this new route. The
long continued efforts of the Northern Pacific railroad to put a bar to
the growth and prosperity of their
city, have seriously interfered with
its normal development us a center
of population and commerce. It is
only the determination, enterprise
and confidence of our business men
which has enabled them to hold.1
their own in spito of the marked
discriminations against thom. • The j
Northern Pacific felt that they wero j
iu its power and that it could do ns ]
it pleased with them aud their business. Now, however, the conditions
ure changed. Tho shippers of Seat-,
tie ean afford to be as independent
of the Northern Pacific as they ,
choose. If that company desires
their business, it will be compelled
to ask for it and to oiler such in.
ducements as will ntti-net traflic. If'
it does not wnnt their business,
there is another line which does and
whieh is willing to offer for it every
inducement. It will deliver goods
on nur wharves as quickly, in as
good order, and as satisfactorily in
every particular as the Northern
Pacific, und it will net assume an
attitude calculated to make its patrons believe that it is displaying
rare condescension in deigning to
receive their business. If the town-
site booming, rule or ruin policy of
the Northern Pacifio is continued,
it must be at Ihe cost, not of Seattle, but of the company. Formerly
we were largely dependent upon that
road; now we nre not. Formerly
they were masters of the situation;
now they are not."

Monday Evening, AuguM S3, 188U.
The Kamloops Sentinel advocates
the introduction of cents as a commercial legal tender in British Oolumbia. We ure opposed to anything
of the sort. Hoth in Victoria and
tliis city five-cent pieces are in circulation, and we hope tliat no smaller change will ever find its way into tliis province. This is not a land
of coppers, and wo hope it never
will be. Tlie absence of five-cent
pieces has boen a real grievance. A
person who wants tn pay ten cents
with a quarter gets left every time
to tlio extent of Eve cents, and merchants aro obliged often to accept
10 cents when they ought to get 15,
But 5 cents is small onough change
for any commercial transaction ifi
British Coiumbin, and we hope our
circulating''medium will never go
lower than that.
Who Sent the Telegram?
The ingenuity of some people is
exceeded only by their unscrupulous-
ness. In a late number of the Toronto Globe we find the following
telegram, dated New Westminster,
August 13th: "Tho people here
are disgusted with Sir John
Macdonald. After he accepted the
invitation to visit this place great
preparations were made for his reception. H was then stated he
could rOmain in the city less than
24 hours, and would arrive at nine
at night. But every one was disappointed. The people turned out
to receive the premier, but he not
keeping to his arrangements, the
people's indignation and disgust
manifested itself. The arches were
torn down, the decorations were destroyed, and all went home, leaving
the premier to grope his way into
the city as best he could after midnight." There was certainly u good
deal of disappointment when it was
found that Sir John proposed to
remain less than a day in the city,
but tlie last sentence in the above
telegram is absolutely and inexcusably false. Notwithstanding tlie
late hour at whicli Sir John arrived
(1 o'clock a. m.) he was met by a
torch-light procession and received
with enthusiasm. Carriages wero
in waiting for him and liis party at
tlie wharf, and they were escorted
through the city by tiie officials and
torchbearers. Neither the arches
nor the other decorations were torn
down or disturbed, and the reception ou Saturday was of the most
cordial aud enthusiastic kind. Tho
person who sent this telegram ought
to be ducked in the river.
The Eastern Question Again.
Our telegrams tliis afternoon
bring startling news from Bulgaria.
Without warning, and evidently by
premeditated arrangement on the
part of Russia, tlie King of Bulgaria has been forced to abdicate,
and the people have placed themselves under Turkish authority. It
is not known yet what will be the
effect of this unlocked formovemeiL
among the nations of Europe, hut
it is difficult to perceive how such a
breach of confidence can be overlooked. It is said that this was one
of tho matters which brought together the emperors of Germany
and Austria a few days ago, and
that they consented to abandon
Prince Alexander so ns to preserve
the triple alliance. The tone of the
German official press gives strong
probability to this view, and leaves
the position of Great Britain certainly not stronger timn it was on
the onstern question. It may be
very well to say that Britain's interest in Bulgaria is very much less
than thnt of other European powers, hut if the movement reported
in our telegrams to-day should result
in bringing Hussia nearer to tho
gates of Constantinople, Britain's
interest in the situation may perceptibly increase. There seems to
he little doubt that Russia's restless
desire to increase her territory will
sooner or later bring her into collision with Britain, and then people
may begin to stand out from under.
Ft may seem to Germany and Austria gootl policy to leavo the restraint of Hussia to Britain, but
they may find when too late that
the policy of delay and inaction is
an extremely costly policy in tho
end.

The eirl or (he Period
• Editor Columiuan: In your Issue of
the 20th inst. there appeared an article,
purporting to be a criticism of " the girl
of to-day" as seen through the eyes of
some nameless writer in the Cincinnati
Enquirer, and " the girls of to-day" who
reside iu New Westminster must confess, Mr, Editor, to some surprint that
the article in question was published and
thereby indorsed by the Colc mm an;
but, believing, as they do, that it was
done thoughtlessly, tboy also believe
tliat you will not fail to be willing to
give as much of vour space to the other
side of the question. Of " tho girls of
to-day" none may be angels, and few
saints, and many might be better thnn
they are; but in answer to the sneer
"thatshe is a mere ornament and nothing more," let the lives of thousands of
helpful, energetic girls, in nearly every
profbisloii and avocation of life, answer.
In the words of a recent writer, '.'.Glrla
of all classes wero lever more generally,
more properly, more busily engaged than
they are to-day. Girls wore never so
agreeable, so bright, so interesting and
accomplished as now. Girls never contributed so much to the general welfare
and productiveness of society as they do
<f-day." But listen to our critic: "Her
education consists of a few lessons in
grammar, Latin, music, and drawing,"
aud " ahe completes nothing." Oh! tlie
eyes of the man who wrote that must
have beon closed or covered with very
much hesmoked glasses these many
yeurs! What of the " sweet girl graduates" who term after term curry off tlie
first prizes, and highest honors, the fore
most colleges on the continent can bestow? Wake up! O, Rip Van Winkle
of tlie Enquirer, and learn that while you
have beeu sleeping " the girl of to-day"
lias passed, and left yon far behind. Rub
your eyes! and behold her away yonder
in the world's arena, not to be towered at
as she honorably and faithfully discharges the duties aud fills the place
Goo intended she Bhould. " Do uot
marry her."   Oh! Let  us girls thank
isting system touches at many important points from which, in tho aggro-
gate a considerable volumo of trade is
derived. Again, bo far as is&nown,
the new Pacific routo lies in parts
through very deop water, hence the
cost and difficulty of laying and repairing cable,' and the risk of interruption
would be very great. The lino, my
friond stated, would be not only tlie
longest sub-marine cable in tho world,
but in his judgment, also ono of the
most expensive to maintain. As to
the volume of Canadian, or, indeed, of
American business, with Australasia
I was informed that it was at present
very small and that it would be absurd
to expect any very rapid growth. My
friend, moreover, somewhat ridiculed
the idea of any material help being obtained from the Australasian governments. The present system already
receives a subsidy from some of tbe
Australasian governments, and, prima
facia, it seems very unlikely that tho
governments will see much advantage
in supporting a competing line. For,
if my information bo correct, any reduction in tho rates which might result
from competition could bu secured at
loss expense to the government by additional subsidies to the existing companies. Such wero tlie chief points
dwelt upon by my friend, who is avowedly a hostile critic of the scheme.—

London, Aug. 23. —Gladstone, in
tlie course of au address at Olmelhurst
on Saturday, said; The enthusiasm uf
tlio British friends uf the home rule
idea is an incentive to me never to be
beaten in it, but to continue the struggle for the happiness of Ireland. Although thore may have been prejudice
between Great Britain and Ireland the
fact Lhat in tho recent elections there
were 1,400,000 Englishmen and Scots

that the prejudice was disappearing.
Let mo consult any book or nation in

which docs not say the relationship
between England and Ireland under

and dishonorable to England. If the
country desires to redeem her honor
and enable her parliament to attend to
its pressing business of imperial legislation, the Irish question must he settled."

Loniion, Any. 22.—A dispatch from
Sofia, Bulgaria, dated Saturday, says:
The populace and the troops quartered
in tlie.capitol surrounded the palace this
morning. Prince Alexander abdicated,
and was escorted over the frontier,
The populace then assembled and adopted a resolution praying thc Czar to extend his sympathy to the Bulgarian people. Thc assemblage proceeded to the
palace of thc Russian agent and submit*
- ted to him the resolution, all kneeling.
The agent assured thein that the Czar
was friendly disposed to them, A provisional government has been formed.
The people art* tranquil. Thc city is
illuminated to-night, and ia gaily decorated with flags. Premier Clement has
issued a proclamation announcing the
formal abdication of Prince Alexander,
who renounces the throne forever, being
convinced that his reign would lio fatal
to Bulgaria', Thc premier states that the
new cabinet will serve until thc meeting
of thc national assembly, and expresses
| tho hope that all parties will oo-oporate
i to maintain the law, and assures the people that their ruler will not leave the
country without his powerful protection.
London, Aug. 22.—A foreign lady who
lost 12,000 at the Monte Carlo -gambling
table has committed suicide In a village
near Grehoble. This makes thc seventy*
sixth case of suicide owing to lossc-; at
Monte Carlo since the hcgimiing of the
season.
Dinu-iN, Aug. 23.—Evictions at Give*
edor iu the district of Donegal, have been
concluded. The total amount of rents
concerned docs not exceed t'oO yearly,
There wero 150 policemen and bailifsand
00 cars and boats engaged for 11 days in
the proceedings at a cost of £ 100 per day.
Tho scenes were pitiful, the people being
steeped iu poverty.
Berlin, Aug. 23.—It is stated here
that Prince Alexander of Bulgaria was
deposed and made prisoner during an inspection of troops at Widdeu, Tlio
Cologne Gazelle and Berlin Post express
the belief that the event Mill tend to
preserve peace They say that Prince
Alexander's personal qualities' deserved
a better fate, but as England refusod him
active support against Kussia, and Turkey being afraid to risk war in hehalf of
Bulgaria, and tlie Gustien meeting showing that the alliiincc was unbroken, Ins
position was a hopeless oue.
Vienna, Aug. 23.—Nows of the revolution in Bulgaria caused a heavy and
rapid fall on the bourse. One rumor is
that Prince Alexander was imprisoned at
Widdeu; another that he was placed in
a ship whose destination is unknown.
M. Sankofl', who is the prime mover of
the revolution and nominal head of the
new government, allows only favorable
news to leave Bulgaria.
Lonuon, Aug. 23,-Tho Dally Ntm j
this  morning says:   It is obvious that
Prince  Alexander  was deprived of his
tlirono by directions of the czar.   The
official  version of the revolution  is so
flagrantly and   transparently  dishonest
tlmt it   will   not  deceive a child.   The-
effect may he extremely serious.    Hus- ;
sin's action is absolutely ttuwai mutable, j
The argument of the Berlin Post that the
revolution implies a Itussian victory over '
Knglish influence  iu the oast Is absurd. ,
No power isfluss interested thnn Kngland. j
Alexander wus nominally thc   vassal  of
the sultan, aud if it can be shown that
lie was deposed without the sultan's consent, a grave international difficulty will
at mice lie raised.
Lonuon, Aug. 28,-rTho deposition
of Prince Aloxandr of Bulgaria has astonished the politicians of Kngland.
Consuls to-day have fallen j*, the Egyptian (.ocurities arc down one per cent.,
and Turkish and Russian from one to

WHAT ROBERT KERR THINKS ABOUT IT.
Mr. Robt, Kerr, general freight and
passenger agent of the C.P.R., was interviewed in Winnipeg on bis return
cast from this province, and the Sun
publishes the following report of the
interview. It will be observed that
the reporter has been wonderfully successful in making some big fish yarns
and in perceiving unheard-of excellencies in the Douglas fir:
"I expect," said Mr. Kerr, "that a
large business will bo dono between
Manitoba and British Columbia, and
au fur as facilities arc concerned the
latter province is well oil'. Mr. Kerr
then went on to describe the route of
the line along the Fraser River, which
lie declared was without doubt one of
tbe most beautiful in tho world,
abounding in the wildest scenery imaginable. At and near tlie mouth of the
river is the great salmon fishery, no
less than thirteen canning establishments being situated on its banks,
whieh it is estimated turn out annually from 250,000 to 300,000 cases of
fish, each case containing 4 dozen one
pound cans or from twelve to fourteen
pounds. This fishing is a great industry and yives employment to a large
number of men whilst the "runs" are
on. During the year there are several in<r Jantmry, Smithy claiming to be
runs, the greatest of which is known : __$ by revelation, led the whole
as the "wok-eye" and lasts about.30 body of believers to Kiriland, Ohio
days, and it is during this time that l aere mimv coriVefta were added,
the greatest quantity of hsh is taken; { Smith an(j' Bigdon started a bunk, aud

Tlie pretended " Book of Mormon." !
which was in reality a religious romance written by a Presbyterian mill-
iBter; and stolen by Sidney Uigdmi,
was printed by Smith and Rlgdon in
1830. So thoroughly bad Smith
hoaxed a number of his acquaintances j
with tbe story of tho " gulden plate--"

fche law demands, so the fishers lay off
from late Saturday night until early
Monday morning. To handle this business and develop a fresh fish business
our railway company arc now running
refrigerator cars supplied with Krupp
wheels, air brakes, etc., and by this
means fresh lish can be distributed at
all points along the lino and to the
eastern markets. There will also be a
large export of fruit from Uritish Columbia," contiirtied Mr. Kerr, "and
the O.P.R. will be able to furnish the
dwellers on the prairies with a large
and excellent supply, comprising pears,
peaches, cherries, berries, etc., at low
rates, compared with the past. The
express company are now distributing
fruit as far east as Calgary, and by
next season our rond will havo a perfect service in this ruspect. There is a
bright future for tlm C.P.R.iii connection with British Columbia trade. In
addition to the tish and fruit, in themselves no inconsiderable item, there is
the lumber and minerals, and the former is destined to be a big business at
an early date. Near the coast the
